Congratulations to Sheela and Georgy for their recent paper in the Journal of Heredity that was chosen as Editor's Choice! This project, a collaboration with Erik Enbody and Leo Campagna, explored patterns of recombination in seedeaters and wagtails. Both Sheela and Georgy were supported by EECG Grants from the American Genetics Association.
